Hubs and I decided that instead of buying a new tv for Christmas because ours will be "out of service" unless we go with a converter box... We will be fine with ours and just go for Direct Tv.
And yah for us it will only be $10.00 more than what we pay for Netflix right now! So with canceling our netflix and signing up for a year of direct tv we are both happy and get better tv reception for SURE. Thats one thing about the country! Even with good rabbit ears, you barely get ANYTHING!
I can't wait to get it to catch a few Cooking shows I LOVE!
